There is an old English song that reads like this.



All the nice girls love a sailor,
All the nice girls love a tar;
For there's something about a sailor --
Well, you know what sailors are!

Bright and breezy, free and easy,
He's the ladies' pride and joy.
Falls in love with Kate and Jane,
Then he's off to sea again --



Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy!

I did a tour with the Navy (USS Truman) in the Persian Gulf in '04, fun times! Well I wasn't in the Navy (Marines) but I by and large was in the Navy during those nine months...

Where's your A school at? Just don't get stuck working in the chow hall or cleaning the heads on the boat!

Trying for, when I went into the Navy I had a guaranteed "A" School for advanced electronics, and from there we got to choose our "C" schools based upon class standings. I was a NAV ET (S.I.N.S. Ships Inertial Navigation System) and served 6 years, 2 on-board SSBN submarines and 4 on-board Civilian Oceanographic ships. Unless things have changed a lot I'd say study your ass off and you might be able to pick some good duty. I graduated from Great Mistakes in December of 79, good luck.
